I hate people who post videos of themselves being jackasses for the simple purpose of looking like jackasses.

Also, I'm not staring at those sanity/insanity things for too long. I'm expecting that scary crap.

That would have been so much more sweet and modest had it not been a freaking ad.

It's sad, but it's genuine. All she wanted was someone to love her.:(

Those are pretty much my sentiments. I like the style of the advert and the fact that the smiles are absolutely frightening, but I don't like the implied message: "Money will make you happy, but your chances of winning the Lottery are practically nil so you're basically doomed to misery. Kill yourself now, please."

I've seen it on actual television, so I'm an expert.

In related news, The National Lottery consider the world's richest association football team a charitable cause. (They might not actually be the richest team in the world, but I don't care.)

Wow I've never seen money being used more innappropriately.

A joke, aimed at my government... specifically Bush.

Did you just edit your post from "dig" to "criticism"?

Yes. I decided I probably didn't know how to correctly use the word "dig", so I opted to play it safe. It actually said something completely different before that, as I'd initially read your post as berating me for focusing on something comparatively trivial. I was all poised to give you a piece of my expansive mind, but then I thought better of it.

I thought your article was interesting, it pisses me off when money is wasted in such a fashion. I decided to make fun of my own country instead of yours :D

Yeah, the two white spots were freaking me out a little. It seemed kind of insect-ish.

While I understand the sentiment, I disagree with it. I thought the implied message was "If something good happens to you, maybe you can share the good fortune with others?" The design, character and emotion animation are perfectly done. Plus I love that Patience & Prudence song ; )

I have this thing about advertising being the most effective way to get art to the masses. I'm not the only one, which is why we have things like I.D. Magazine and Pictoplasma (which I have artwork in!). It's easier to forgive something being an ad if it's especially well done. I look at it like this: A company paid for this wonderful little animated short to be produced when it wouldn't have otherwise. It's not completely different when a corporation sponsors any kind of public artwork - a museum exhibit, a film festival, what have you. Taking it even farther, most movies and almost all television is directly sponsored by advertisement. Yes, a lot of times advertising is stupid and annoying, but that makes it even more remarkable when someone produces something of real emotional value. I can honestly say watching that clip put me in a good mood today. I think's a little naive and shortsighted to automatically conclude that advertising is evil. Wether that makes me more or less cynical is an interesting question.

Again - I went to art school. Can you tell?

have you seen thatPepsi commercial with Jimmy Fallon? I think I may be the only person who enjoys it, but I find something slightly hypnotic about it :?

You had a friend who needed her oxygen access privileges reviewed.

You're just wrong.

Nah, I will admit that I did actually discover numerous good bands through hearing their music on adverts. Advertising people do seem to have good taste in music (sometimes). I never actually said that I find adverts inherently objectionable. I could agree with your interpretation of the animation if it had just been a short film, but the presence of the National Lottery logo at the end sours it for me specifically because I have a bit of a personal distaste for the organisation. Sharing happiness is a lovely message, but I'm fed up of the Lottery banging on about how lots and lots of money is what people really need in life, and winning it is the way to get it, and that the chances aren't really that terrible if you just hope a little bit. I'm a miserable sod, I know, but I just can't stomach the bastards. Sure, they give money to charitable causes, but if people really cared about that sort of thing they'd donate the money directly. I suppose it's my inner communist kicking up a fuss. No, I'm not really a communist.

There are adverts I tolerate – I even enjoy the odd few – but I find most to be tedious or stupid to the point of extreme frustration. And the guy from the Cillit Bang adverts isn't really called Barry Scott. The treachery!

In summary: it's nice as an animation, but objectionable as an advert. Also, this is the best review programme ever.
